ASUU Calls For JAMB
Registrar’s Resignation, Says
JAMB Should Be Scrapped
Following the reported issues on the ongoing
2017 UTME registration, the Chairman, Academic
Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU) University of
Ibadan Chapter, Dr Deji Omole has called on the
Registrar of JAMB, Professor Ishaq Oloyede to
voluntarily resign from office.
The academic union also asked the Minister of
Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu to call the
registrar to order to lessen the difficulty being
experienced by the candidates.
According to Dr Omole, JAMB had outlived its
usefulness and the best thing is to scrap it and
allow universities design their standard
examination for their own candidates.
He noted that the fact that a mock examination
was stopped due to logistic reasons points to
incompetence of the JAMB Registrar.
“Why will anybody make life difficult for
candidates whose parents are struggling to live
under the terrible condition the government has
made them to live in?”
“Why would somebody introduce changes that
are only known by members of the board?” .
“How can we ensure that the candidates prepare
well for the exams when they spend weeks
waiting for Personal Identification Number and
are at the mercy of registration officers who
force them to go to cybercafe where they have
arrangements to first create their profile before
they can have their PIN?” He queried.
